Well my first suggestion is to consult the printer's user manual. (found here: http://downloadcenter.samsung.com/content/UM/200602/20060216163720484_ML-2010_English.pdf)

However, if both the online/error and toner save light blinks you could be having a spoiler problem, a software problem, or a connectivity issue. If this is connected to the computer directly, check all your connections. See if the error (exclamation mark) has any other information as to what the error might be. Check to make sure the front manual load panel is closed and that there is paper in the general paper tray. Check for a paper jam which the manual will explain how to do in detail. And if push comes to shove restart the printer, reinstall the drivers on the computer.

If it is connected to a network or router, check to make sure the computer is directed to the printer on the network and make sure the proper port controller is activated and directed as well. Make sure the network is recognizing the printer or the printer is even plugged into the network.

The orange light is blinking. Above the light is a triange with an exclamation point in it. I have tried deleting and reloading the printer and that doesnt work.


Do you have a new toner cartridge loaded? The red/orange light will blink when toner is low, even if everything else is working fine. Try printing out a test sheet and see what that tells you about your toner level. (Test sheep prints by holding the orange button down a second or two and releasing.)

Since I'm mainly printing drafts for my own use, I've just let the light blink while I eke out whatever I can from the remaining toner (occassionally removing the cartridge and shaking it -- being careful of clothes and surroundings -- to re-distribute the toner on the inside.
